2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sandé: Where I Sleep (MP3 Download)
No one can deny that this British vocal group are really good, but alas not with this song. Emeli Sande’s version of this is truly great, whereas this just about hits average at best, although I personally would say mediocre. What is a great song that is full of soul and passion here becomes something that sounds more like a choral.

I am afraid this is one of those occasions where the song chosen does not work with a vocal group and no music. I’m sorry Voces8, you have done some great songs, but alas this just isn’t one of them. Emeli Sande sings this and you can hear the depth and emotion, but this just doesn’t come across with an eight member vocal group, and also this is one of those songs that does sound better with some music.

In brief then, what is a great song unfortunately comes across as mangled here. Give me Ms Sande any day.
